Will "Enrollment Creep" Hinder HST?

Here's another web update from Catalyst -- this one about HST: Late students undermine high school reform. It's so-called "enrollment creep"­—a chronic

surge of students who register after the official start of the school

year—which regularly throws off academic timetables and forces teachers to

delay their lesson plans, sometimes for weeks.

"Chicago Public School’s multimillion dollar High School Transformation

project is forcing the district to confront a long-standing, but quiet

problem: Hundreds of freshmen don’t register for weeks after the first

day of school."

Check it out. Up to 20 percent late enrollment at some schools, they say.
